        Sir Walter Raleigh's Instructions to His Sonne, and Posterity. Whereunto is added a Religious and Dutifull Advice of a Loving Sonne to His Aged Father

      London: Printed for Benjamin Fisher, 1632 First edition. Charles Whibley's copy, with his bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. Finely bound in full tan polished calf, spine rebacked to style with original calf laid on, spine with five raised bands, contrasting dark brown calf label, floral devices to compartments in gilt, boards decoratively ruled in gilt, pale yellow edges, blue marbled endpapers. Overall very good, with some light wear to the extremities, lacking the portrait frontispiece found in some copies, title page with repairs to the top edge and mounted on a recent leaf, edges trimmed, a hint of scattered marginalia, former owners' bookplates to the front pastedown, otherwise clean pages. Overall, a lovely copy of this extremely scarce publication. No other copies have appeared at auction for over 50 years (the last copy offered being this copy) and with less than 100 copies listed in OCLC's WorldCat. Charles Whibley (1859-1930) was an English literary critic, journalist and author, who was notably responsible for assisting T. S. Eliot in becoming an editor at Faber. This volumes contains two philosophical essays related to gentlemanly behavior: "Sir Walter Raleigh's Instructions to His Sonne, and Posterity," and "The Dutifull Advice of a Loving Sonne to his Aged Father." In the first part, Raleigh cites several mandates for becoming a proper, respectable gentleman; each of the ten chapters provides a different instruction, summarized in epithets by Raleigh as "riches not to bee sought by evill means," "wisest men have been abused by flatterers," and "what inconveniences happen to such as delight in wine," among others. Similarly, "Dutifull Advice," which has been attributed to both Raleigh and Robert Southwell, is a younger man's advice on the differences between his father's social codes and modern traditions.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        LE GRAND VOYAGE DU PAYS DES HURONS, SITUE EN L'AMERIQUE VERS LA MER DOUCE, ES DERNIERS CONFINS DE LA NOUVELLE FRANCE, DITE CANADA

      Paris, 1632. [bound with:] DICTIONAIRE DE LA LANGUE HURONNE. Paris. 1632. 12,[146],[14]pp. Small octavo. 18th-century calf, spine gilt, edges stained red. Slight separation at upper front hinge. Leaves washed, titlepage expertly remounted on matching paper. A few unobtrusive marginal repairs in main text, bottom edge of leaves of DICTIONAIRE... expertly restored. Withal, a very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. Sagard was a Recollet missionary who spent 1623-24 in Huronia as a missionary to the Huron nation. His book, based largely on his own experiences and those of his associates, as well as contemporary letters and documents, are considered to be the main authority for the history of the first Recollet mission in Canada in 1615-29, and the main source for Indian life and relations with the French which does not stem from the Jesuits. "Sagard and Champlain were the first explorers to give any very definite statements about the Huron Indian country and what they had learned from these Indians about the Great Lakes Country" - Greenly. Most of the work is devoted to the life of the Hurons, and has been called "a brilliant, astonishingly precise fresco." The Huron dictionary is the first printed Huron vocabulary, a collection of French expressions translated into Huron, to be used as a manual by traders and missionaries. Sagard assembled it from his own work and those of other missionaries, and it remains "the most complete compilation extant dealing with the old Huron language." A major and important rarity of Canada, New France, and the Great Lakes region.

        Comedies, Histories and Tragedies. Published according to the true originall copies.

      Tho Cotes, for Robert Allot, London 1632 - "A DRAMATIST'S COPY Folio, pp (xx) 303 (i) 232, 419 (i). Text in double column, prefatory matter single, Roman and Italic letter. Ionic head & shoulders engraved portrait of Shakespeare by Martin Droeshout on t-p in unusually fine impression (the author’s best known representation), woodcut initials and headpieces. Address "To the Reader" by Ben Jonson) inlaid on blank. Lower outer corner of first 3 ll. slightly soiled. Wine (?) stain to blank outer corner of next three, reappearing very occasionally in text, a few marginal tears and spots, light age yellowing, last leaf dusty. A very good, clean, well margined copy (taller than Pforzheimer's and the same width) in handsome late C17 calf, spine with gilt compartments, morocco label, arms of the 2nd Duke of Newcastle gilt stamped in central panel on covers, joints repaired, directions to binder on rear pastedown. (C17?) Autograph of Thomas Wright in red chalk on fore margin of t1, autograph of Edward Filmer (1717) at head of fly and address to reader, and of Viscount Mersey (1938) on fly. In folding box. A handsome and important copy of the 2nd folio edition of Shakespeare’s plays in the first variant issue and the second authoritative version of the Shakespearian canon. Published 16 years after the authors death it differs very significantly from the quartos and is largely reproduced from the first fol.(1623). It is from this version of the text that all modern versions derive. Were on easked to nominate the two most important works in the English language, culturally, historically and linguistically the Shakespeare folio and the King James Bible would be the obvious choices. As Printing and the Mind of MAn 122 (on the first folio) puts it "the magic of Shakespeare’s poetry is potent only in his own tongue; but the great theatrical scenes, the great dramatic figures are universal. Hamlet’s doubts, the doomed love of Romeo and Juliet, Brutus’ dilemma, the Falstafian image, the characters of Jago, Petruchio and Lady Macbeth are part of the fabric of western (and not only western) civilisation .they are more real to us than the history books." This edition is also notable as containing the first appearance in print of any work of John Milton’s - his prophetic 16 line epitaph on the author that his great lasting monument will "not a starre-y pointing pyramid" but his "unvalued book". A very nice association copy. Filmer was a playwright and author whose tragedy "The Unnatural Brother" was first performed at the theatre in Little Lincoln’s Inn Fields, a place well known to Shakespeare, whom Filmer much admired. When Collier attacked the English stage (including Shakespeare) in print, Filmer defended both in a sensible and well written treatise entitled "The Defence of Plays or the Stage Vindicated" (1707) to which Collier was compelled to reply. It was one of the first significant literary controversies immortalised in print. Henry Clinton 2nd Duke of Newcastle (1720-1744) was one of the great Whig magnates of his day. Though he played no direct part in politics his huge influence in so many parliamentary constituencies meant his political support could not be ignored. For his cousin Sir Henry Clinton he procured the ill fated command of the British forces in North America during the Revolution. At Clumber in Nottinghamshire he created one of the most beautiful parks in England. The house there was demolished in 1938 and the present volume sold from the splendid library the previous year alond with a great Audubon "America" and the Lamoignan Hours. Viscount Mersey formed a remarkable collection of important early books during the mid c.20. Every volume was chosen with care and he recognised the importance of original condition with appropriate binding long before that became common. STC 22274 a. Pforzheimer III 906. PMM 122 (1st). Greg III pp1113-1116. Todd vol V (1952) pp81-108 English" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Verhaecht war Mitglied einer bekannten Antwerpener Künstlerfamilie. Vor 1590 dürfte er nach Italien, u.a. nach Florenz gereist sein.

        Le Fondement de l'artifice universel de l'illuminé docteur Raymond Lulle EDITION ORIGINALE

Champenois, Paris 1632, petit in-12 (8x14cm), (14)p. 1-66pp. (3f. bl.) 67-374pp., relié. - Binding post (nineteenth century) full brown calf. Smooth spine tooled with fillets, wreaths and gilded finials, ornate boards of great cold plate depicting roses, gilded net framing of these plates, net gilded on the cuts, all mouchées slices. Caps and joint skillfully restored. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale illustrée de 8 planches et diagrammes (certains dépliants) et de deux volvelles. Traduction du catalan par Robert le Toul, sieur de Vassy. Reliure postérieure (XIXème siècle) en plein veau brun. Dos lisse orné de filets, guirlandes et fleurons dorés, plats richement ornés d'une grande plaque à froid figurant des rosaces, filet doré en encadrement de ces plaques, filet doré sur les coupes, toutes tranches mouchées. Coiffes et mors habilement restaurés, première garde presque entièrement détachée. Raymond Lulle n'a jamais été véritablement un alchimiste, et la vérité est qu'il méprisait l'Alchimie comme une fausse science (on en trouve de multiples traces dans ses écrits), mais on ne sait comment les légendes s'agglomérèrent autour de son nom et il devint assez rapidement un des grands noms de l'alchimie, un mythe, et la plupart des traités qui lui furent attribués à la Renaissance ne sont pas de lui. En vérité le docteur Raymond Lulle, Catalan d'origine dont l'oeuvre écrite a fixé durablement les bases du catalan écrit et dont la culture recueillait tant celle de la civilisation arable que chrétienne, grand théologien (cannonisé) dont le projet était de mêler la dialectique philosophique et les vérités théologales de la religion chrétienne, a été associé au grand courant de la philosophie hermétique, qui suppose, par la connaissance analogique des rapports entre les choses, la voie du salut, et qui mêle ésotérisme et alchimie dans sa partie pratique. On ne sait donc si ces traités sont fidèlement de lui, mais il est exact que Lulle inventa une machine à laquelle font référence les figures et les volvelles contenues dans cette ouvrage, dont le but était de découvrir la vérité ; toutes les figures, diagrammes et volvelles sont ainsi amplement explicités, leurs desseins étant clairement de découvrir les rapports entre les choses et la vérité de ces rapports, dans une conception cosmogonique de l'univers. Cette machine logique créée par Lulle était destinée à renverser les arguments des rationalistes comme Averroes, et à établir la vérité de la foi en toute chose, car le principe universel de toutes les connaissances et de toutes les sciences, c'est Dieu. C'est d'ailleurs cette position de philosophe mystique qui lui ouvrit les portes malgré lui de la philosophie hermétique à laquelle l'avenir l'associa ; Le Fondement de l'artifice universel est d'ailleurs répertorié dans toute bibliothèque alchimique ou de philosophie hermétique (Lenglet Dufresnoy, Caillet...).

        Directorium generale uranometricum in quo trigonometriae logarithmicae fundamenta. [isued with:] Tabula ca trigonom. logarithmica.

      Bologna, Nicolo Tebaldini, 1632 - 2 parts in one vol, 4to (227 x 160 mm), pp [xvi] 330 [vi] [mispaginated 1-152; 157-164; 161-330; ff [160], with woodcut diagrams in text and large folding letterpress table printed on both sides; a few gatherings with some slight browning, a very nice copy in contemporary limp vellum, lettered in ink on spine 'Cavaler. Uranometricum', split in spine but sound and without loss. £10,000First edition of Cavalieri's first publication. 'It was this work that introduced logarithms into Italy, but as it was in Latin, that honor is often given to the author's later works written in Italian. Besides introducing logarithms, the work deals with spherical triangles, and Cavalieri introduces a new formula for calculating the area of a spherical triangle.'The tables consist of two major logarithmic tables, one trigonometric and the other numeric. A large errata is included at the end. These logarithmic tables are much more detailed than those appearing in Cavalieri's later Italian publications and have entries to every second of the arc whereas the later ones are only to every minute' (Tomash and Williams, Erwin Tomash Library of the History of Computing I pp 266-7).In order to be reconfirmed in his chair at Bologna, 'Cavalieri published his Directorium generale Uranometricum, the exceptional logarithmic tables he had compiled. The work is divided into three parts, devoted to logarithms, plane trigonometry, and spherical trigonometry, respectively. In addition to noteworthy innovations in terminology, the work includes important demonstrations of John Napier's rules of the spherical triangle and of the theorem of the squaring of each spherical triangle that, attributed to Albert Girard, was later claimed by Joseph Lagrange' (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomy p 211).The first part introduces the concept of logarithms, and proceeds with detailed examples of their use in astronomy, geometry, perspective, architecture, mechanics, geography, etc. Cavalieri particulary emphasises their utility in making astronomical calculations. The second part contains extensive logarithmic and trigonometric tables derived from Napier and Briggs.Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647) studied mathematics under Galileo's friend Benedetto Castelli in Pisa; later he secured the chair of mathematics at the University of Bologna in part through the intercession of Galileo, who wrote a letter of recommendation in which he praised Cavalieri's mathematical skills, and said 'few, if any, since Archimedes, have delved as far and as deep into the science of geometry'. Cavalieri became one of Galileo's most important disciples and advocates; there are 112 letters recorded that he wrote to Galileo. Cavalieri held the chair from 1629 until his death eighteen years later. He was one of the first Bolognan professors to teach the Copernican theory. He published eleven books on the sciences in Bologna, of which this was the first. He made major contributions to optics, astronomy, and mathematics, particularly to a systematic method of indivisibles that was an important precursor of the calculus.Carli and Favaro 131; Cinti 91; Riccardi I 332; Tomash and Williams C48

        ESSAYES OR MORALL, POLITIKE, AND MILITARIE DISCOURSES... Whereunto is Now Newly Added an Index of the Principall Matters and Personages Mentioned in This Booke [Translated by John Florio]

      London: Printed by M. Flesher for Rich Royston, 1632. Early printing of this great work, the third of Florio's translation, with the scarce A1 leaf printed on the verso only, "To the beholder of this title." This is the First Edition to contain the "Index of the Principall Matters" and the first to contain the Droeshout engraved architectural title-page. Engraved architectural title-page by Martin Droeshout, decorative woodcut headpieces and capitals throughout. Folio, bound in contemporary paneled calf, the covers with central panel blind ruled and rolled, the spine with raised bands, tan morocco lettering label gilt. [1, Beholder of the This Title], title, [1], Engraved title,[10], 631, [12 Table or Index] pp. collated complete as called for. A handsome and well preserved copy in its original contemporary antique binding, the book crisp and clean throughout with occasional and very minor age evidence, the "To the Beholder of This Title" leaf laid down, the binding sturdy and very well preserved and in quite pleasing condition showing authentic age, the hinges sometime refurbished incorporating all of the original materials. A CORNERSTONE WORK IN PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN, ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS, AND AN IMPORTANT EDITION. This is an uncommonly handsome copy of this work. This third edition was the first to include the highly useful index. Florio's was the first translation of Montaigne into English, and remains among the best-known because of its beautiful language. The Montaigne translation is considered Florio's magnum opus. Montaigne was one of the great European intellectuals of the 16th century and is often credited with being the father of the modern essay. His works were of great influence to Descartes, Pascal, Bacon and Swift. Later in America, Ralph Waldo Emerson and his fellow transcendentalists would be highly influenced by Montaigne. Montaigne wrote these essays during a most calamitous period in European history, and to which he frequently calls attention. The religious and civil confusion resulting from the break up of Christian unity in Europe, the frequently violent disturbances which followed Luther's challenge to Papal authority at the start of the sixteenth century, the constant religious and political fighting throughout Europe as different peoples and groups tried to establish or reestablish their authority was exacerbated still more by the shattering of the devout religious confidence which had been observed so perfectly in Hildegard and Dante. This awesome conflict on the continent was not resolved until 1648. Montaigne?s Essays evoke to the highest level, the struggle of the intellectual in this cathartic period. And one essay in particular is especially important in the history of English theatre for ?the Canniballs? is credited with being a primary influence for William Shakespeare?s TEMPEST.

Modern crushed red morocco by Palomino, in blue morocco chemise and marbled slipcase. ?'One of the most important early works on the North American Indian?" This "work of great interest and importance" (Sabin), an account of R?collet lay-brother Sagard's missionary work in Huronia, contains the FIRST PRINTED DICTIONARY OF THE HURON LANGUAGE and is the primary non-Jesuit source on Huron life and life on the R?collet mission to Canada from 1615 to 1629 (Streeter). Sagard was a missionary to the Huron nation from 1623-24, and this work is based on his time in Huronia as well as the accounts, documents, and letters of his contemporaries. It is an engaging, sympathetic portrayal of Huron life and an exhaustive document of Huron culture. Sagard's tenure was brief--according to Field he was ?'worn down by the privations and sufferings of a missionary life,?" though by other accounts he achieved some success in his work--and he returned to France to write his GRAND VOYAGE. A work of immense importance and scarcity, rarely found complete and "One of the most important early works on the North American Indian" (Church).

        The essayes or, Morall, politike, and militarie discourses of Lord Michael de Montaigne, Knight of the noble Order of Saint Michael, and one of the gentlemen in ordinary of the French Kings chamber [translation by John Florio]. The Third Edition. Whereunto is now newly added an Index of the principall matters and personages mentioned in this Booke

      London: Printed by M. Flesher, for Rich: Royston, in Ivie-lane next the exchequer office, 1632. Third edition in English. Additional engraved title page by Martin Droeshout; [14], 161 [i.e. 631], [13] pp. Folio. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, with gilt lettered spine label; endpapers renewed, but the original, with copious annotations in a contemporary hand, have been preserved. Covers slightly scuffed, closed tear in engraved title skillfully repaired and its outer edge extended, faint dampstaining to lower outer corners of text block, otherwise a very attractive, sturdy copy, with the armorial bookplate of William Hutton. Third edition in English. Additional engraved title page by Martin Droeshout; [14], 161 [i.e. 631], [13] pp. Folio. "Will be read to the end of the world". Montaigne's immortal, pioneering Essaies first appeared in 1580, and John Florio's translation, which became the standard for Elizabethan England, was first published in 1603. Although this third edition was published after Florio's death in 1625, it was printed from a corrected copy of the second edition of 1613. It had an enormous impact on English writers - most notably on Francis Bacon, who adopted the new form in his own Essays (first ed., 1597). Then there is the case of William Shakespeare, whose patron, the 3rd Earl of Southampton was tutored by Florio. It is generally conceded that Montaigne's essay "On Cannibals" was a direct source for Shakespeare's The Tempest, and some (e.g., George Coffin Taylor, Shakespeare's Debt to Montaigne, 1925) have argued that both Hamlet, in particular, and King Lear were also directly influenced. It is interesting to note that the engraved title page which first appears in this edition, is by Martin Droeshout, artist of the celebrated portrait which adorns the folio editions of Shakespeare. The original endsheets of this fascinating copy bear the copious annotations of an anonymous early owner, probably from the late 17th or early 18th century, quoting several excerpts in English translation from Pascal's Pensées, St. Evremond's "On the Exactness of Reasoning," and La Bruyère's Caractères (in French) - all regarding Montaigne's book, which, as the citation from Saint-Evremond written here on the endsheets has it, "will be read to the end of the world".

        Dialogo . . . massimi sistemi del mondo Tolemaico, e Copernicano. Bound with: Le operazioni del compasso geometrico (3rd ed.)

      Florence: Gio. Battista Landini, 1632. Galilei, Galileo (1564-1642). (1) Dialogo di Galileo Galilei Linceo . . . sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo Tolemaico, e Copernicano. [8], 458, [32]pp. Woodcut text illustrations. Lacking engraved frontispiece and final blank. Florence: Gio. Battista Landini, 1632. (2) Le operazioni del compasso geometrico et militare. Terza edizione. [8], 80pp. Folding engraved plate, woodcut text illustrations. Padua: Paolo Frambotto, 1649. Together 2 works in 1, 4to. 222 x 160 mm. Late 19th or early 20th century vellum, gilt-lettered spine label; front free endpaper lacking. Minor dampstaining in the Dialogo, with small marginal tear in one leaf neatly mended. Very good, crisp copies. Bookplate (dated 1894) of the Durham Cathedral Library.(1) First Edition. Eight years after Pope Paul V had forbidden him to teach Copernican theory, Galileo received permission from a new Pope, Urban VIII, to discuss Copernican astronomy in a book, so long as that book provided equal and impartial discussions of the Church-approved Ptolemaic system. Galileo?'s Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems held to the letter of this command: the device of the dialogue, between a spokesman for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy and Aristotle, and an educated layman, allowed Galileo to remain technically uncommitted. After the book?'s publication, however, Urban took offense at what he felt to be its jibes against himself and ordered Galileo to be tried by the Inquisition in Rome. Galileo was sentenced to permanent house arrest and forced to abjure all Copernican ?"heresy.?" The Dialogo was suppressed by the Church five months after its publication and formally condemned in June 1633; the work was placed on the Index librorum prohibitorum, where it remained until 1835. ?"In 1615 [Galileo] was officially silenced as regards the truth of astronomy. The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends—intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic—it is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, willfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is in physics. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth?'s rotation will cause it to fly to pieces. So Galileo picked up one thread that led straight to Newton. The Dialogo, far more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace?" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Carli & Favaro, Bibliografia Galileiana, 128. Cinti, Biblioteca Galileiana, 89. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 8. Horblit 18c. Norman 858. Printing and the Mind of Man 128. (2) Third edition. Galileo?'s proportional compass, which he began manufacturing in 1597, was the most useful and successful calculating instrument until the invention of the slide rule in the mid-nineteenth century. In 1606 Galileo issued his Operazioni del compasso containing instructions on how to use the device; this first edition is a legendary rarity, as it was privately printed in an edition of only 60 copies. A second edition, with a small plate illustrating the compass, was published in 1640. The third edition is an exact reprint of the 1640 edition, but with a significantly larger plate.

        Piscium Vivae Icones

      1632. FIRENS, Petro. Piscium Vivae Icones in Aes Incisae et Editae Ab Petro Firens. 20 ff. Illustrated with 20 numbered engravings, all laid down. Oblong 4to., 178 x 265 mm, bound in full 19th-century pigskin, gilt title placed within gilt circle stamped onto front cover, four raised bands with gilt title on spine. N.P., n.d. [Paris: Pierre Mariette, ca. 1650?]. A suite of twenty numbered engraved plates illustrating 82 various water creatures after Adriaen Collaert -- fish, shells, seals, frogs, turtles, shellfish, swordfish, blowfish, eels, lizards, lobsters, a sting ray, a dolphin, and a walrus -- shown four or five to a page in creative combinations against a white background, with the Latin name of each animal engraved above it. While mostly accurate, the depictions are also inventive, giving wing-like flippers to the walrus and lively expressions to many of the fish. Petro Firens (Pierre Fierens, 1580-1638) was a prolific Flemish engraver working mainly in Paris, where he was appointed graveur du Roi. He is remembered for ornamental and scientific suites such as this. Manuscript numbering in the upper corner of each plate indicates this book was previously bound with another, however the engravings form a complete set. Laid down on thick paper stock. Rare: OCLC locates only one copy in America (Harvard) and six in Europe. Thieme-Becker XII, 7. Diels/Leesberg (New Hollstein), 1436-1461.

        Africae. Descripto IX. lib. absoluta.

      Lugd. Batav., Elzevir, 1632. First Elzevir printing, two parts in one volume, originally published in 1550. 24mo. 800pp. (two volumes bound in one, paginated consecutively). Contemporary full brown calf, spine in 5 compartments, gilt title and decorations. Top of spine and frontcover on the hingings a bit worn. With engraved title page. Translated into Latin from the original Italian. Overall a fine copy. Leo Africanus, born Al-Hassan ibn-Wazzani, was born a slave in Granada of African descent. Because of his outstanding literary ability (he had already written a draft of this book in Arabic when he was captured), the Medici Pope Leo X freed him, converted him to Christianity and became his patron. This book, a detailed account of Africa, its trade routes, geography, terrain and people was an exceptionally important source for information on the continent and is generally considered the first book written by a person of primarily African descent. Blockson 101 #1: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history.".

        UNHAPPY PROSPERITIE EXPRESSED IN THE HISTORIES OF AELIUS SEIANUS AND PHILIPPA THE CATANIAN. Written in French by P. Matthieu and translated into English by Sr Th. Hawkins

      London, printed by John Haviland for Godfrey Emondson, 1632.. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1632, translated by Sir Thomas Hawkins. Small 4to, 190 x 140 mm, 7½ x 5½ inches, engraved pictorial title page, dated title page to second part but register and pagination continuous, pages: (4), 299, bound in contemporary full vellum, hand lettered to spine. Most copies like ours just have the engraved title without the letterpress title, a few have just a letterpress title. Some discolouration to vellum, some light rust staining to lower cover, head of spine just slightly worn, ties lacking, short closed tear to fore-edge of front endpaper and title page, neatly repaired with no loss, signature on front endpaper, occasional small pale stain, otherwise contents clean and bright. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. The first part is a translation of "Aelius Sejanus, histoire romaine" by Pierre Matthieu. It is translated into English as a satire on the fall of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. The second part is a translation of "Histoire des prosperitez malheureuses d'une femme cathenoise, grande seneschalle de Naples" also by Matthieu, based on a story from "De casibus illustrium virorum" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Both works are supposed to have been written by Matthieu originally to represent the rise and fall of Concino Concini and his wife, Leonora Galigai. Concino Concini, (d. 1617), was a Florentine adventurer, favourite of Marie de' Medici, queen of France, who exerted great influence after the assassination of Marie's husband, Henry IV in 1610, and succeeded the duke of Sully as first minister. His greed and his spy system won him the hatred of all classes. His efforts to weaken the nobility provoked an unsuccessful revolt (1615) led by Henri II de Condé. In 1617, Louis XIII had Concini assassinated. His wife, Leonora Galigaï (1571?-1617), lady in waiting and favorite of the queen, was beheaded and burned for sorcery.

        Dialogo sopra i due Massimi Sistemi del Mondon Tolemaico, e Copernicano

First edition of Galileo?'s statement and defence of the Copernican system of heliocentrism, which directly led to his trial for heresy in Rome in 1633.
